Aslan, oil and enamel on canvas 120 x 120 x 2 cm
Aslan, my heart is strong. I will face this day with courage and profound love for my family. I have the heart of a lion and I will not be broken.
Aslan is a contemporary painting using abstract expressionist techniques juxtaposed against fine art. The painting is full of dynamic energy and texture. Aslan has been created using free movement of fluid paint to define the shape of the lion then enhanced with strong palette knifed areas of colour. Thickly applied strokes of oil paint represent the shaggy mane of the big cat whilst small gold flecks add depth and interest to the painting. The painting is bold and vivid and captures strength and courage in the lions poise. Aslan is ready to hang
